"I had created a couple of long form pieces specifically for this release and was letting them incubate. At about the same time, Thomas Park had been mixing my Drone Artifacts into a couple of his recent (and highly recommended) Luminous Deep releases."
"So it occurred to me, why not send my two pieces for Complex Silence 32 to Thomas and invite him to work his Mystified magic on them? Why not indeed."
"And so it was. And here it is. A collaboration of two new long form works by the two musicians who bring you the Complex Silence Series: Phillip Wilkerson and Mystified."
"While these two tracks do take a somewhat darker turn than usual for a Complex Silence release, they also accurately represent the distinct musical signatures of each musician. You can easily hear the light ambient signature of Phillip and you can equally distinguish the massive, brooding drone signature of Mystified. Phillip soars and sighs through the upper end of the scale while Mystified dwells in the depths, adding an ominous earthiness as counterpoint to Phillip's optimistic airiness. The two signatures merge well to weave a musical tale of time and intensity, of what was and what is yet to be--pulling the listener into the collaboration as well, to fill in their own personal details."
"But enough analysis. Music is for listening. And sharing. And collaborating. Enjoy these two tracks and the voyage through darkness and light they offer to your imagination."-- PCW - February 2013
